MISS AVENAL

going to rain. I expect we'd better be going home or we shan't get any tea. Perhaps father will show us the way to the cave to-morrow. I'll race you home, Peg!'
Away they ran across the grass, waving good-bye and saying that to-morrow they would be back.
Listlessly I retraced my steps. It was all I could do to reach the mill, and when I got there I was wet to the skin. Miss Avenal put me to bed; she herself lit the fire in my bedroom, but that night I was delirious.
I have no clear recollection of the week that followed. When I awoke on the morning of the eighth day, the first person I saw was Nurse Harrison. She used at one time to share my room at The Haven; and, though perhaps we had often quarrelled, it was like meeting my oldest friend to see her at Kildale.
`When did you come?' I asked.
`I've been here nearly a week,' she said, `and to-morrow I am going back with you to Yorborough.' `And Miss Avenal?'
`Miss Avenal left this morning. You've been very ill, you know, and you mustn't talk.'
I went back to Yorborough next day. I expected to be glad to leave Kildale; but when the time came, I do not think I really cared, for I was dazed, only half responsive to the life of the outside world. '
Nurse Harrison was very gentle with me, and this surprised me, as at one time I had thought her rough with her patients. I asked if we should be sharing our old room together, and then she told me that, since The Haven was quite full, liliss Simpson had made arrangements for me to have one of the rooms in the new wing. I did not altogether like the idea, but every one was so kind to me that I could not well complain. I thought as the weeks went by that I was kept there apart from the other nurses in order that I might the better regain my strength; but that hope left me when I realized that my strength and beauty had been taken from me by Miss Avenal. I wondered at the strange thoughts that passed through

my mind in the daytime. I thought at first that I should soon cease in the quiet and peace of Yorborough to be troubled by those stranger dreams at night. But now I understand. I know now that when Miss Avenal took away my strength, she left me with her memories.
